Capital Project Variance - Quarter 3 Financial Update (2016)
(in thousands of dollars)

Capital projects sometimes require more or less than the approved budget. Throughout the year, project variances are managed though either requesting extra budget dollars from the Capital Variance Project (CVP) or by transferring excess capital project budget dollars to the CVP through a budget reduction.

Transfers to the CVP do not require approval. Requests less than $250, one-time or cumulative on a project, may be approved by the departmental Commissioner or Director, in combination with the Commissioner of Corporate Services. Requests in excess of $250, one-time or cumulative on a project, require Council approval. At the end of the year, the balance of CVPS are adjusted to $1,000.
